Simmops Was it family connections?
A memorable game?
Do you still support and follow them?
I started to support them properly in 1997 when I first got a season ticket. I was born in North London in Enfield and my family are Spurs fans as are my Mrs family (great grandad has had a Season ticket for 60+ years). They are Enfield born and bred and my son has been forced spurs upon him.
My parents are both South African and moved here just before I was born. They were spurs fans but that's because it was limited coverage there and it was Liverpool or spurs. My dad said greaves is the best player he's seen.
I actually liked Blackburn when I was younger. I remember watching them and I liked their kit and shearer and Sutton upfront.
I had a reading st for 13 years from 97 to 2010 when I went to move to london and then went to games still for 3 years regularly. Now watch highlights and that's it. I think for me when mcdermott left my abiding memories of rfc left and everything changed. Since then it's been drab. I still look for results but follow results of a family member who is a professional at another team in the same league.

Mid Sussex Royal Family - kind of - but my parents were Southampton fans. We lived by Prospect Park though so I used to go with my brother; first game Spring 1971 and we were relegated to Div 4 for the first time at the end of that season.
I never saw the appeal of following Liverpool/Leeds/Arsenal who won all the domestic trophies back then....at least I could watch my team every week; back then Match of the Day had 2 matches and there was one on ITV the next afternoon. None of this blanket Sky stuff.
